Description
The National Electronic Injury Surveillance System – All Injury Program (NEISS-AIP) is an expansion of the Consumer Product Safety Commission's (CPSC) National Electronic Injury Surveillance System (NEISS), used to monitor consumer-product related injuries. NEISS-AIP expands the CPSC's definition of reportable injuries to include all nonfatal injuries and poisonings treated in U.S. hospital emergency departments, whether or not associated with consumer products. NEISS collects injury data from a nationally representative sample of U.S. hospital emergency departments; NEISS-AIP uses a subsample of those emergency departments for its data collection.
